I think we should change it to revolution day.

We didn't have a revolution. We had no intent of overthrowing the British government.

Ah, you must be one of these millenial fuckwits who thinks that accuracy and having interest in things beyond filling your head with trash make someone worthy of being mocked.

That's why it's called the American revolution and not the British revolution. Even in 1775(when fighting began), there were plenty of patriots who wanted to remain in the empire; by the end of 1776, none who valued liberty did. That is, by definition, a revolution.
